What is a non-dependant?
A non-dependant is a person aged 18 or over who lives in your home, or is using your home as their main residence. A non-dependant does not have to be a family member.
Will I need to provide proof of my non-dependant's income?
Yes, we will need to see proof of your non-dependant's income. You must provide us with all the information we need within one month of telling us about your non-dependant. We will then recalculate your benefit using the non-dependant's income.
The following list are common proofs of income for non-dependants:
- Wage slips
- A completed employer's certificate of earnings (available from the Council Offices)
- Award letter from the Department for Work and Pensions
- Student award letter
- Accounts (if your non-dependant is self-employed)
